Major upgrade time! Enlarged torso, arm customisation, weapon edit and new weapons :) This was to balance out his appearance as my previous updates made his torso small compared to his limbs. He's now taller and buffer :) Also, heartlight ftw!
Name: Monarth Gender: Male Species: Draken Occupation: Guarding Treadanus Nui Title(s): The Core Guardian, The Great Guardian Element: Shadow with some psychic powers Signature move: "The Deadly Dance"
Born and grown on the hills of a mountain and a dark forest behind it, Monarth was loner, who somehow found peace in the nature. His skills with the element of shadow provided him to be trained by Master Kronion and later acquiring the guardian duty of Treadanus Nui.
Besides guarding Treadanus Nui, Monarth, as an elementalist, is in charge for guiding the shadow element to other worlds. However having his other duty, he's having replacers in the Elemental Universe, who were weaker and easily defeated by Kuragari. He manages to slow down the overwhelming shadow flow from his location, but not enough.
In battle his weakness is ranged combat. He prefers powerful charges with his weapon, such as his signature move, which require some distance, but too much distance is out of hitting range. He also has his spinning shurikens for close combat, which spin like round saws. He can also throw them but retrieving is the hard part. Also in closer combat getting too close to his target unables him to use his bladed spear.
Monarth's abilities combine martial arts, his element and the weapons he uses. His weapons are imbued to shadow, allowing him to make them disappear and appear anytime, however not repair them in any way. His bladed spear guides shadow energy and it's ability to create portals is his main passage to the Elemental Universe and other places he knows. He cannot warp into a location he hasn't seen yet. Although having learned martial arts, Monarth is poor fighting with his hands and legs, therefore preferring his weapons, carrying most of the time his bladed spear.
New larger strikeshield. Bladed spear also gained change of color, relating closer to the shadow element.
New weapons! Spinning chainsaw-like shurikens, although he rarely throws them, preferring their cutting ability. Can be carried on shoulders, work also as shoulder guards.
Mirror effect for the shurikens.
Here he stands in his glory :) I'm really proud of this form, and compared to it the previous form was a wimp :) A good practice for detail for the Bio Cup 2011. I have been assigned with a medieval theme, so on to that then.
